Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Becky Albertalli Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

William C. Morris Award Winner: Best Young Adult Debut of the Year * National Book Award Longlist

"A remarkable gift of a novel."—Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle

"I am so in love with this book."—Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still

"Feels timelessly, effortlessly now."—Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever

"The best kind of love story."—Alex Sanchez, Lambda Award-winning author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met.

Incredibly funny and poignant, this twenty-first-century coming-of-age, coming out story—wrapped in a geek romance—is a knockout of a debut novel by Becky Albertalli.

And don't miss Becky Albertalli's The Upside of Unrequited or Leah on the Offbeat!

    “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” is an absolute delight to read. The problems faced in this masterpiece is so realistic it will give you chills! The difficulties that the main character, Simon Spier, are believable in ways I could never imagine. Will (and do) recommend to others.

    ...”people really are like houses with vast rooms and tiny windows. And maybe it’s a good thing the way we never stop surprising each other.” Simon is a High School Student. And if that isn’t “bad enough”he’s coming to the realization that it’s time he came out of the closet, in part because of his online friend,Blue. They challenge each other. They support each other. But, have they figured out who each other is? This is a wonderful book. I’m 61 years old, obviously not Albertalli’s audience. When I was confronted with this issue, my immediate family was not as accepting as Simon’s is. It is so nice to see that, at least in Simon’s case, it was much easier....weeeelll, he is 3 generations removed and one would think this could be seen as a “non issue” these days if kids weren’t so cruel with things they don’t understand. ... oh, and this is one of those “I’ll never see the movie” because the book is so good. Highly recommended 5/5
  • Great.

    It’s not your average love story.
  • RE: A Great Time

    I couldn’t resist the style for the title, nor could I y’all myself out of writing a review. This book was phenomenal, there is no other word I can use to describe it. I am in no way the type of person to sit and read for hours on end, but I couldn’t pull myself away from this novel. The entire novel, beginning to end in one sitting. I experienced a slew of emotions and was left wondering if I was happy or sad to have finished the book so soon, It was as if I was saying goodbye to close friends once I turned the final page. I absolutely recommend this to anyone and I have no doubt in my mind that I will be revisiting this book many times.
  • Albertalli nails it.

    I found this novel creative, socially relevant, & impossible not to read in one sitting. I was most impressed with author's amount of insight into what it's like to navigate being a gay teenage boy. It brought back many memories for me of my own high school experience, esp. the obstacles that come with being closeted, and the intense emotional ups-and-downs of first love. This story's message is SO IMPORTANT. Regardless of the reader's sexual orientation, this book wills the power to both remind anyone exactly what being 17 was like, and give hope to anyone who is and might be struggling like Simon Spier.
